Sometimes when Democrats speak they destroy their arguments because the arguments they have made were never based on facts.
Democrats like to argue platitudes and virtue signaling but not address the actual issues they say that they support.
The Federalist Papers Reports:
That was the case with Democrat 2020 presidential contender, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker when he appeared on “Face The Nation” on Sunday.
NEWS: @CoryBooker said @realDonaldTrump is “trying to pit Americans against each other and make us less safe” by threatening to release undocumented immigrants from the border into sanctuary cities in an exclusive interview with moderator @margbrennan https://t.co/3DqCvXjMaA pic.twitter.com/y2vRStlcPr

Democratic presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker, of New Jersey, accused President Trump of trying to incite anger and divide Americans with his threat to release undocumented immigrants from the border into sanctuary cities. CBS News’ “Face the Nation” moderator Margaret Brennan asked Booker whether the president’s threat was an empty one — whether he was, perhaps, creating friction in order to jumpstart a Congress that has not acted on immigration.
“You say ‘friction’ — I say he’s trying to pit Americans against each other and make us less safe,” Booker said in the interview.
Wait. Hold on. It appears that Sen. Booker said that sanctuary cities are not safe and adding more illegal immigrants to them would make them less safe.
On Face The Nation Sen. Cory Booker said having more illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities would make us less safe. TY for destroying your Party’s entire argument. https://t.co/tBV7GlqRE5

Cory Booker last year: Trump cracking down on sanctuary cities makes those places “less safe” (https://t.co/bJtOihkcPI). Cory Booker now: Trump would make sanctuary cities less safe by using them as sanctuary for illegals: https://t.co/oYwVgS7ucI

How would releasing undocumented immigrants into sanctuary cities be any less safe than releasing them into non-sanctuary cities? Is he stating that releasing undocumented immigrants is unsafe? Hhhhmmm. https://t.co/dgMoS5ct3l

Less safe? Hmm. I thought the political talking point was illegals make our communities better! As someone who has lived in a border state (and within 100 mile of the border) a majority of my life I know better. Cory, of course, never has. https://t.co/EcJWQGsI3h

How exactly does releasing illegals in Newark, NJ instead of El Paso, TX make people less safe, Senator? https://t.co/scym2c2D0z

If it makes us less safe to have them here, then why are we letting them in?

Booker states that t/ threat of releasing illegals into sanctuary cities would make us less safe, presumably bc there would be conflict w/ Americans in those cities? If so, Booker & his cohorts would be to blame, as releasing them into supportive cities is t/ logical conclusion.

So. Sanctuary cities will not welcome refugees and those seeking asylum? That, is hypocritical and dishonest.
